Is that the 4 J's (that's me and my 3 sisters) retire and end up together in Colorado.
I was originally planning to retire early and move out there with Jill and her guy, Tim. But, thinking about leaving the grandchildren and me Mum was making me too sad, so I opted to stay here. For now.
I have a good and close relationship with each of my sisters. Jill and I are a lot alike, though...we share similar personality traits. We talk on the phone several times a week...and though we don't visit each other often, being only a few hours apart has always made it possible to travel to see each other if we wanted or needed to. When she moves in 47 days, that will no longer be possible. Oh, we'll continue to talk on the phone (almost) daily...and they'll come to visit once a year, but it just won't be the same. Knowing that she's not a few hours away up the road. Ya know?
We had a great time together this weekend. We ate a LOT. Too much. Did a bit of shopping. I opened a few early birthday gifts. We watched a movie. I didn't take any photos. Not sure why. She left a bit ago. I know we'll talk many times before she actually moves, but this is the last time I'll see her.
Julie is already out there in Colorado, though she is about 4 hours from where Jill & Tim will live.
I am very happy for Jill...but very sad for myself.
